Unfiltered lager

6/10 Don’t be put off with the look. This may look like a can from the Tesco Value range but it’s actually a decent little beer!  Brewed in Germany – and they know their lagers! This is an unfiltered lager which means that’s retained much of the flavour and body that the brewer intended. This… Read more »

Camden IHL lager

7/10 I enjoyed this “Indian Hells Lager”!  The Camden Town brewery have done well with this.  It’s as refreshing as lager with the taste of an IPA. Hoppy lager… who would have thought?  We love IPA but we brew lager. Do this is an IPA, resurrected as lager…. in our office this is known as… Read more »

Longboard

8/10 I’m drinking this ice cold as it’s been in the fridge for 4 days. It’s been a long day at work. Finally got the kids to bed. Now I’m thinking that this maybe the best lager I’ve ever tasted…!  Smooth, refreshing and slightly malty. Not too fizzy.  Im a big fan of the Kona… Read more »

Samba King

6/10 It’s 9.30pm and it’s taken me ages to get the kids in bed. Long day at work. Knackered and hungry, I open the fridge and there’s a cold beer waiting for me. Bingo.  The house is now quiet. I sit on the couch to enjoy the moment.  …. Ok wife just came home and… Read more »

Big wave

7/10 What a lovely little ale!  It’s quite a light ale that would be perfect on a hot day. Usually ale gets a bit chewey in the sun but this is as light as lager. It has soft bubbles and a smooth taste. It’s actually a very refreshing ale!  Even though it’s quite light it… Read more »

California Lager

6/10 I drank this ice cold on a warm evening. It hits the spot! A very refreshing lager with a smooth finish.  Normally I find that most lager tastes the same. But this is a decent beer. It tastes as lager should, rather than the weak keg offerings of the typical UK pub.  Golden colour,… Read more »

Samuel Adams Boston Lager

6/10 When I lived in New York I expected Budweiser to be the number 1 beer. I was wrong. Sam Adams was everywhere and seemed to be most people’s favourite. (Not surprisingly next to the other weak rubbish on offer… Corrs or Miller anyone? I’d sooner drink the contents of the toilet.) This is a… Read more »

Valmiermuiza

6/10 This was brought back from Latvia by a friend of mine.  Valmiermuiza Manor (est 1764) brews unpasteurised beer, which Im a big fan of! If I’m going to drink lager then let’s make it a real lager like this one.  It’s a full bodied lager with a decent taste. Not like the fizzy, tasteless… Read more »
